Here is Caesar Augustus with the proclamation that all from the House of David must come to Bethlehem to be registered.
And suddenly, (clue for the archangel to make her move to the shepherds), there appeared in the sky an angel to the shepherds who were in fear!
Then there was a multitude of angels singing, "Glory to God in the highest!"
All went to adore the newborn King-Christ the Lord!
There was no room in the inn in Bethlehem, well, there was no room in our church. Fr. Ariel asked the choir and I to sit on the sanctuary step and give up our chairs for those standing. So going with the flow of things we picked up our song sheets and relocated for the homily and we sang from the sanctuary step for the rest of the Mass. And yes, my little choir did sound like the heavenly angels on Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
